    Great place to work!

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) West Des Moines, IA

    ProsHigh quality of teachers, newer technology, most students motivated to learn.

    ConsPublic school district...hands tied by bureaucracy sometimes...not able to always get rid of under-performing teachers. Sometimes it is "who you know" rather than "what you know".

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    I've worked in the administration office for five years.

    Specialist (Current Employee) West Des Moines, IA

    ProsGreat co-workers, good benefits.

    ConsNo opportunity for professional growth. There is no career--just jobs. Budget constraints for FY2015 and FY2016 will make workloads heavy hamper morale.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe professional development opportunities are pointless if the experience and learning don't lead to promotions or additional responsibility.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Job description does not even BEGIN to describe this job.

    Level III Special Education Associate (Former Employee) West Des Moines, IA

    ProsWonderful benefits package, time off, and breaks during the school year.

    ConsVery little pay for the hazards of the job, too much negativity, incessant gossiping by teachers and staff. Very little real leadership from the teachers.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet a handle on the gossip and back stabbing and reprimand the teachers for allowing it to continue in their classrooms.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
